Bell and Leighton of the Sebring team led the hitting, each getting two blows, but the most damaging hit as far as 1420 was concerned was Bulger's line single with the bases loaded in the second.
Gravett and Kirk formed the battery for the Ocala team and with a little better support might have fared better. Dewhurst starred in the field and at bat for the losers.
With Quilling and Fowler both used up the first day, Coach Boudet pulled a surprise move and started Bell in the second game. Bell came through in fine style allowing only five hits and no earned runs. Tihe only run scored by Co. 1420 came across in the first inning after three successive errors by Co. 433.

^ ROGERS.^ O S PUBLISHED SEMI-MONTHLY BY COMPANY 463, CCC, FLA. SP-3. DISTRICT F T VOLUME I :--y SEBRING, FLORIDA, FRIDAY, JULY 17, 1936 Number 41 CAMP 453 TEAM WINS BASEBALL TITLE Florida CCC Camp Commanders Meet At Cohference Held At Mulberry DUDLEY LOOKS OVER N E W SITE FOR COMPANY Camp and Paper Get Rating of Excellent From Heads The new proposed camp site for Company 453, CCC, was inspected by Captain Hugh B. Dudley, subdistrict inspector for this district and Captan L. P. Warren, Company Commander, last week while Captain Dudley was here on his regular inspection tour. After returning to camp, neither of the officials made any statement as to their attitude toward the moving the company. In an interview with a representative of the Rogers-Post, Captain Dudley stated that there were no new developments concerning the removal of Camp Florida. Your paper has all the facts that are available at the present time, he continued. Major Wallander, the new commanding officer of district "F,” with headquarters at Fort Screven, Georgia, made an official inspection tour of the camp last week pronouncing everything in excellent order. It was rumored around camp for a few days that the government had decided to fight foreclosure proceedings on the property which the camp is located on at the present time. Inspector Dudley, before leaving camp, gave it a rating of excellent. A mark of the same degree was given the camp paper. Upon doing so, he made the statement that “The Rogers-Post” was the best paper that he had seen in the district. Citizens of Sebring and Avon Park are continually inquiring of en. roUees as to the possibilities of the company b^ .g removed from Highlands Coi r. ty. From a annoymous source, comes the report that a building will be built on the new site for the purpose of housing the office and other facilities necessary to carry on the army supe v sion. The cost of the project, it said, will be $8,000.00 Huts which re used by the boys for living quar'. jrs will be transported and set ufi on r the contemplated site. Government lease on the building and prenerty that is now being used by r apany 453, has expired and ly must vacate by Septcm-. SUPERINTENDENT BACK Buperinh ndent A. C. Altvater, of Highlands Camp, SP-3, returned to his duties this morning after an absence of one day from his duties at the office of the National Park Service which is located in the Florida Botanical Garden and Arboretum. He was forced to remain at his home for the short period due tx> a cold contracted when he was •caught out in a recent rain. The forced rest was greatly needed, as it has been necessary for him to spend many hours of over-time work. July 11, 1936, saw all the commanding officers and all the educational advisers of the sub-district meeting for a conference in Mulberry. The following companies were represented: 1420 and 1401 from Ocala, 1418 Sulphur Springs, 1421 Miami, 5468 Brooksville, 5430 Sarasota, 2415 Mulberry, and 453 Sebring. The conference was held for the purpose of discussing plans to improve the efficiency of the CCC program in the sub-district. Business was attended to Saturday morning and immediately afterwards the recreational part of the conference got in stride. A good old pistol shoot started the ball rolling. After more than an VINTEN TO SPEAK AT CCC CAMP MASS MEET C. R. Vinten, Regional Inspector National Park Service, for the state of Florida will be the principal speaker at the mass meeting of enrollees on July 27. Talks w.ll be made by “five CCC members, on various phases of safety, for which purpose the meeting is held. All foremen, leaders, assistant leaders and truck drivers have been requested by G. N. Hicks, safety director, to give a safety rule upon answering the roll call. Mr. Vinten is a former project superintendent of Highlands Camp, being assigned at the time of its creation. May 1934. Severing his connections with the camp in December of the same year, he became connected with the National Park Service, serving in the capacity of regional inspector. Regulations on safety are being adhered to by enrollees stricter at the present time than ever before. The monthly mass meeting and the weekly one have impressed the necessity of safety so clearly that it is part of the member routine. Having been connected with the Emergency Conservation Program almost from beginning Mr. Vinten is well qualified to speak on the policies of the organization. 1 Forest Heads Meet To Set Up Budget Mrs. Linwood Jeffreys, Park member of the Florida Board of Forestry, Harry Lee Baker, State Forester, and C. H. Schaeffer, Procurement Officer State ECW, met with the executive committee and trust fund committee of Highlands Hammock for the purposes of setting up the annual budget and shaping the policies of the organization. Prior to committee meetings, the officials made an inspection trip of Highlands Hammock State Park and the Florida Botanical Garden and Arboretum. A. C. Altvater, project superintendent of Highlands Camp, conducted them on the tour through the hammock and garden. heur cf shooting, Capt. Bennett of the Miami camp Was adjudged the winner and it is believed that he received the prize. During the pistol shoot, Cap'. Dudley, sub-district inspector, had on exhibition the pictures of the fish he caught the previous week. It was a mighty fish. The Captain also had the presence of mind to have a witness present. In the afternoon the baseball aggregation from Co. 1420, Ocala, and 453, Sebring, tangled in a hotly contested battle. Sebring emerged on the long end of 6 to 2 count. Members of the Co. 453 team spent Saturday evening in Lakeland viewing the big city lights once more.

I42u from Ocala. The winning team to be declared the sub-district champions. Plans were changed at the outset and both teams decided toremain over and play a second game on Sunday morning. Co. 453 won a hard fought game Saturday afterI noon by a 6-2 score, then came back the following morning to take an easy 8 to 1 win. Both these wins by Co. 453 eliminating the necessity of playing a third game. Fowler started on the mound for 453 Saturday, and after a shaky start in which he allowed 1420 to score two runs in the first inning settled down in the second, only to sprain his ankle and have to bJ carried off the field. Quilling, who also plays for the Sebring Foremen, then took over the hurling duties and let the Ocala team down to four hits and no runs during th>; rest of the game. Bell and Leighton of the Sebring team led the hitting, each getting tw r o blows, but the most damaging hit as far as 1420 was concerned was Bulger’s line single with the bases loaded in the second. Gravett and Kirk formed the battery for the Ocala team and with a little better support might have fared better. Dewhurst starred in I the field and at bat for the losers.

PAGE TWO THE ROGERS-POST FRIDAY, JULY 11,1936 THE ROGERS-POST Semi-monthly publication of Co. 453, Fla. SP-3 CCC District “F,” Sebring, Fla. •Sponsor and Adviser M. A. BOUDET Editor W. L. CHESHIRE Ass’t Editor and Editorialist R. E. BARNES Business Manager G. G. McRAE Sports Editor L. R. KAZAR REPORTERS: Britt, Butts, Whidden, Farr, Rannou, Hemrick, Hutto, McLarty Captain L. P. Warren, Commanding A. C. Altvater, Project Superintendent Rookies, you have had the opportunity of enrolling in the three C’s. Show the Government and your parents that you are grateful for it. By personal conduct, let it be known that the privilege is appreciated by giving a good day’s service for every day that you spend in the organization. The CCC has a two-fold purpose. First, to provide healthful employment for the largest possible number of idle young men and at the same time to make it useful employment and not a charity or a dole. Something that will be of present value and of increasing value as years go by. The; second measure in this two-fold program is to train and equip young men, so upon leaving the service they can take their place in the fields of industry, commerce, agriculture and social life. One of the best and important ways in which you can equip yourself for your respecive place in life, is to take advantage of the excellent Education Program offered in Rll camps. See the Educational Adviser at your earliest convenience. While enrolled in the CCC will be the best opportunity to study and obtain an education. A few weeks ago this paper carried an editorial concerning the urgent need of a larger and more adequate recreational hall. Since that time certain things have developed which make the matter of a hall impossible at this time. During the same period, the company has come into possession of some money of which a part could be used very nicely for the purpose of purchasing some games as well as other recreational devices for the entertainment of the boys. Subscriptions to a few leading newspapers would be a good thing. Newspapers will help to give the enrollees a wider range of reading material, thus giving them information on the happenings of the world at large. “The best paper that I have seen in the district,” was the opinion advanced by Captain Hugh B. Dudley, sub-district inspector, when he was asked to comment on The Rogers-Post. Members of the staff are proud the paper has this distinction, being the best in the district. It is very gratifying to know that the first issue of the regular newspaper publication has met with such overwhelming success. Praise has been voiced by all who have come in contact with a copy. Sickness is a very unfortunate circumstance to encounter, but those who have met with this misfortune, in the camp, have the assurance of being in the best of care. Dr. McDaniel and his first aide, James Cocker, give the boys every consideration and attention possible. Fourth of July Dance was the biggest that has been held in camp and was a success in every respect. Everyone wishes to thank Lieutenant Morrow, and all others, taking part in making it an event to be long remembered. UNDER THE SHADE TREE And it came to pass that “Shorty” Dotson finally attended a class. Of course he did not get into the class room under his own power, but then, who wouldn’t go when pursued by McLarty and Rivenbark. Lieut. Morrow: Well Reddish, I guess I’ll have a cheese omelette this morning. Reddish: Will you have some eggs in your omelette. You’ve got to give a little, take a little And let your poor heart break a little That’s the story of that’s the glory of love. You’ve got to laugh a little, cry a little Before the clouds roll by a little That’s the story of that’s the glory of love. As long as there’s the two of us We’ve got the world and its charms And when the world is through with us TWISTED COMPARISONS This quotation might well be the cause of so much goldbricking: “The dreamer lives forever, while the toiler dies in a day.” Rookies, Rookies, everywhere and the camp looks fine again.

FRIDAY, JULY 17, 1936 THE ROGKRS-POST PAGR THREE PM SERVICE CLUB DROPS NIGHT GAMES Last week saw the tvghly touted i Park Service team of Co. 453 take it on the chin in two contests which knocked them out of first place. The first game was lost to the army team of Co. 453 by the score of 3-2 in an exciting battle while the Junior team of Sebring took their measure ih the second encounter to the tune of 12 to 6. The game between the Army team and Park Service team left nothing to be desired as far as airtight ball was concerned, both teams performing very notably. Niles, Army pitcher, hurled shutout ball until the ninth frame when Strobel, third sacker let one slip through his legs and permitted two runs to come in. Every game between the two camp aggregations promises to be one of great excitement and interest as a strong feeling of rivalry*' exists between them. Again Friday night in a game with the Juniors of Sebring the Park Service team drank deeply of the dregs of defeat. Both teams played loose ball and each contributed its share of errors but it seems as though it was the Juniors’ night to win so win they did, the final score being 12 to 6. Batteries for the Army-Park Service game were Niles and Quilling for the winners; Hood and Leighton for the loosers. R. Surrency and J. Freeland formed the battery for the Juniors Friday night while Beatty and Wat* son hurled and caught for the losers. TARBUTTON’S THE BEST OF QUALITY AT THE BEST PRICES. AVON PARK — FLA. C. C.

Having won the sub-district championship in Mulberry last week end. the team feels confident that it will make a good showing at the district tournament. It it not yet known where the district tournament will take place, but it is understood that it may be either in Olustee or in Ocala. The leading team of w that part of the district at present is the strong Fargo, Ga.. outfit. Homerville, last year's champions, seems to have been eliminated. BALL BEARINGS The mo6t sensational catch of the season was made by Leighton in the second game — a running diving catch of a foul fly. CAMP 453 TEAM WINS BASEBALL TITLE (Continued from Page One) in this game with two hits apiece. Hogan pitched a good game for the Co. 1420 team but again the Ocala support cracked.

With Smart and Barrett completing the course in fine style, Qo. 453 can now boast of four members possessing life saving certificates, which fact leaves the camp pretty well supplied as far as life guards are concerned. Most of the enrolless are pretty fair swimmers but for those who are inexperienced there will be a guard on duty. Much credit for the splendid showing of the team in the second game should go to "Trainer Sweetheart" McLarty for keeping the ball chasers from the bright lights. The bunting game finally clicked in Saturday's game. One run befilnd going into the fifth, the company aggregation managed to squeeze in five runs through the medium of three bunts and two hits. Strobel got into the hit column Saturday by banging out two hits, one ol them being a lusty double to right center. Hits— Off Gravett, 6; off Fowler, off Quilling, 4.

Hogan, spunky Ocala infielder and pitcher, suffered from scratches and bruises about the face when he collided with a stake while chasing a fly ball. The Ocala team proved itself to be one of the most sportsmanlike outfits encountered by 453 this season. Nice going, boys.

Both Lamb’s and Bulger’s ‘Big Moments” will soon be back from up north. What a nice case for blackmail. We hear that a local, girl named Sue was giving Sweetheart McLarty the “eagle eye”, one night at the ball game. It seems that a preacher said a few words to “Pinky” Taylor on the Glorious Fourth and he has been treading on air ever since. I wonder what it was? Two of the boys are trying to get into the navy. No more goldbricking for them. The ffever blisters” on Ralph Page’s lips are better. He must be staying in camp. In the right surroundings, the moon light will blister, my boy. Leroy Skinner was taken to the station by his dad, when he left for the CCC. Having always lived a good ways cut from town, Mr. Skinner asked: “HOw long have you signed up for, son?” Leroy: “For only six months.” Mr. Skinner replied, “Well, I’ll just wait at the post office 'till you; get back, then you won’t have toll wait for me to corpe after you.” > “A Well Dressed Man Is Never Run Down at the Heel” flTRY; The Modem Shoe Shop Sebring, Florida Our great and glorious Nation In this work of cultivation cJives, the boys an education Through the CC camp.

It is so long that they meas. ure the wheel-base in yards instead of inches. It seems that John Rus,sell (Huckel Berry) Strobel, an exarmy truck driver has been appointed pilot for the monster. He plans on making the score even with the Avon Park law by going through the town sideways. (What a shame to demolish the town like that, Huckel Berry.) Ollie Weaver, known to many of his friends by another name, was complimented the other night for ~ the excellent scaffold that he built. It is rumored that the scaffold saved his life many times that day. Have you noticed? That Mr. Altvater islost without his walking stick — it is unusual to see Mr. Mann without a stub of a cigarette in his mouth — Mr. Norris is capable of attracting an ? audience any time — Mr. Cornell's ability to turn out excellent and neat work in such a short time.
